Festival-goers at Reading have been telling Newsbeat that they're looking forward to meeting some of the bands.

Rob Etheridge, 20, from Northampton said: "We're here to see Fall Out Boy. As soon as the gates opened we came over to queue for the Fall Out Boy signing."

Ross Owen Luke, 22, from Portsmouth added: "We waited at the gates from 8am and ran over to the signing tent."

Other fans are excited about seeing acts across the site's eight stages.

Kerry Golland, 21, and Amanda Lentz, 24, from Stanford-le-hope in Essex said: "We're looking forward to seeing Disclosure, Fall Out Boy and Knife Party."

The pair also talked about their highlights at Reading.

Kerry said Friday, when Green Day headlined, was "the best day of my life", while Amanda said the fans at Imagine Dragons' set on the BBC Radio 1/NME stage on Saturday were more energetic but she still enjoyed it.

"The crowd was mad. We got pushed over with a few other people but it was great."
